How many times have you missed a tax payment because you forgot about the due date? How much of a penalty did you have to pay? Bet you really enjoyed paying that!

The following is an example of a partial list of tax due dates for Georgia. Personalize it (consult with a CPA for yours) and then use it to remind yourself of those special dates that you get to give more money to the government (accompanying high pitched screams are okay).

Jan 20

Sales and use tax (high volume needs to be filed monthly)

Jan 31

Quarterly payroll tax returns
Year-end payroll tax returns
1099s due to individuals
W2s due to individuals

March 15

Corporate income tax returns

March 31

Business License (due date tends to vary by state and locality)

April 1

Personal property tax
Corporation renewal registration fee

April 15

Individual income tax returns
Partnership income tax returns

April 30

July 31

Sept 15

In Outlook, copy the list to a New Post in This Folder card. Then drag it to the Outlook calendar. Simply move it from date to date in your calendar to remind you of the payment due date.

In a paper system, copy the dates to a 3×5 card. Move it from date to date in your hanging folders (Calendar system) to remind you of the payment due date.

Believe me. The last thing you want to do is to get to know the IRS more intimately—and have to pay to do it.
